With so many delicious taco restaurants in Atlanta, it can sometimes be difficult to decide where to go. Have no fear- we’ve rounded up the best of the best to make it easier for you. These seven taco restaurants not only have excellent tacos, but they also provide the best margaritas, sides and ambiance.
When you ask locals where you can get the absolute best tacos and margaritas, 99% of them will most likely mention bartaco. With its laid-back atmosphere bartaco is a go to for fresh tacos. It’s so good it even caught the attention of the New York Times! They wrote- “as a neighborhood drop in place for lunch, a casual supper or anything in between, bartaco is hard to beat”. You can’t go wrong with any of the tacos but a few of our favorites include the pork belly, tuna tatako, Portobello and baja fish. They are also known for their “secret taco” which is a mystery taco that isn’t found on the menu.

New to Brookehaven, Jefe’s has quickly become a neighborhood favorite. Their most famous taco is actually a vegetarian option- their fried avocado taco. They use rice flour on the avocado, which makes it crunchier than other avocado tacos we’ve tried. It also comes with a special sauce that gives it tons of flavors. No matter what you order, we highly recommend adding this taco to your list.
